Chanel Iman Unleashes Her Inner Bombshell for ELLE

Published September 7, 2011

ELLE magazine is giving a final splash of summer with Victoria’s Secret models, including Chanel Iman, covering their fall 2011 issue.  


Chanel Iman rocks one of four covers that features Victoria’s Secret girls Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr, sporting ‘80s-inspired ensembles. The quartet of models were shot by Alexei Hay in Los Angeles for the bikini-clad shoot.


"These covers harken to what made ELLE ELLE: Shot outside, drenched in sunlight, color, and of course accessories,” said editor-in-chief Robbie Myers. “The women look right back at you with all the personal and sexual confidence in the world.”


The issue, which hits newsstands September 20, reminisces on the history of “the bombshell” and Iman gave her definition of what makes a woman worthy of the title. "Any woman who has a positive attitude about herself and carries herself with class but doesn't try too hard and say, ya know, 'Hey, look at me, I'm a bombshell,' is basically a bombshell. It's just a woman with a positive, strong attitude who knows she has it going on."
